Hymn: O Come, O Come Emmanuel
Video: O COME O COME EMMANUEL
O come, o come Emmanuel and ransom captive Israel,
That mourn in lowly exile here until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice, rejoice O Israel, to thee shall come Emmanuel.
O come Thou Wisdom From on High,
Who orders all things mightily,
To us the path of knowledge show
and teach us in her way to go (retrain)
O come o com Thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height,
in ancient times reveal the Law
in cloud, in majesty, and awe (refrain)
O Come Thou Rod of Jesse’s Stem,
from every foe deliver them,
that trust Thy mighty power to save,
and give them victory over the grave (refrain)
O come Thou Key of David come
open wide our heavenly home.
Make safe the way that leads on high
and close the paths to misery (refrain)
O come Thou Dayspring From on High,
and cheer us by Thy drawing nigh.
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death’s dark shadows put to flight (refrain)
O come Desire of Nations bind
in one the hearts of all mankind.
Bud Thou our sad divisions cease,
and be Thyself our Prince of Peace (refrain)
